‘Mobile’ will remain the digital advertising hero in 2020 too

exchange4media | January 20, 2020

Last year, the Dentsu Aegis Network exchange4media Digital Report predicted that digital advertising was expected to grow with a CAGR of 32 per cent to reach Rs 24,920 crore by 2021. The share of mobile advertising, according to the report, was expected to overtake desktop advertising and was predicted to be 67 per cent by 2021. No one is selling the importance of the digital advertising story anymore because agencies and brand have already bought into it. Instead, they are busy finding new and innovative ways to leverage it. Within digital advertising, the success of mobile advertising is also being written out in big bold letters. Any digital marketer will tell you that the mobile is the cynosure of all eyes vis-à-vis digital advertising.

Google’s AI advertising revolution: More privacy, but problems remain

Google | March 16, 2021

In March 2021, Google announced that it was ending support for third-party cookies, and moving to “a more privacy first web.” Even though the move was expected within the industry and by academics, there is still confusion about the new model, and cynicism about whether it truly constitutes the kind of revolution in online privacy that Google claims. To assess this, we need to understand this new model and what is changing. The current advertising technology (adtech) approach is one in which platform corporations give us a “free” service in exchange for our data. The data is collected via third-party cookies downloaded to our devices, that allow a browser to record our internet activity. This is used to create profiles and predict our susceptibility to specific ad campaigns. Recent advances have allowed digital advertisers to use deep learning, a form of artificial intelligence (AI) wherein humans do not set the parameters. Although more powerful, this is still consistent with the old model, relying on collecting and storing our data to train models and make predictions. Google’s plans go further still.
